Jeltje Fanoy #50 bayside streets

multi-billion price-tags


where are the neighbours


it feels like a graveyard


no one outside, tying up
untidy bean stalks
against the Bay winds


no more music, no
open doors, windows


there used to be smoke,
the promise of BBQs


intermittent hammering


where are the painters,
the old ladders


brought out, once more,
to paint the roofs, red
